A welcomed update! The new version of the app looks much better than the old. I wish the "alarm clock function" from the old version (that didn't work at all) was fixed and carried over to the new version. The reason for the 4-stars is because it is difficult to find/hit the play stream button without accidentally clicking a news story link. Make the play button bigger please!

This used to be a great app for listening to WUNC, but sometime in the past couple of months, it has become so kludgy that it has become impossible to listen to. Maximum frustration, because I like the station, but it will only stream while my phone is completely "on" -- does not continue when the display sleeps. Bad news, and bad business!

About a year ago, my wife and I moved back to Durham. I've enjoyed listening to WUNC's programming, usually through the WUNC app on my android phone. Its key feature for me was the reliability of its connection to WUNC's programming. A month or so ago, it started dropping the connections. Sometime, when it stopped streaming, it appeared the app was having some kind of a data connectivity problem (it would show the pause icon and would recover while I watched). Usually, by the time I brought the app to the front, I would see the Play icon and would need to click the play icon to resume streaming. This might happen every hour or so. I have found that if I open the WUNC web site with the phone's browser and click Listen Live, I get reliable connections again and it streams until I stop it. I also get reliable connections it I use the the browser on my PC laptop.
